Sexy In '75!

Every now and then, someone does something so incredibly over the top that I can't help but stop and stare with my mouth agape.

To whoever the fuck scanned what appears to be the entire Sears "Wish Book" Catalog from 1975 and posted it online, I salute you.

...I think.


Oh!



My!



God!


Question: What's the blond guy in the picture above looking for?

Answer: BREASTS!

I'm guessing that breasts weren't invented until the 1980s, because there isn't a boob to be found in these pics. Let's look at that first picture again... the men appear to be packing more, mammarily-speaking, than the women.

How did anybody manage to get laid in the 1970s? Obviously, they did... because here I am.

No matter how much I'd like to say this is an April Fool's joke, I swear it isn't. Browse all six hundred and sixteen pages (!!!) of this thing by clicking here.

And what's this...? A Winnie The Pooh and Tigger too portable phonograph player for only $28.95? SWEET!!!! And a portable cassette player/recorder with built-in microphone and handle? Now we're jive-talkin' 'bout some real Wish-Book value!

P.S. 1979 wasn't much better. Hell, it might have been worse.

Ouch!!!!!!!!!!!

OH MY GOD!! Who the fuck is so bored they think scanning 616 pages of a Sears catalog would be fun? and Rob, do i even want to know how you stumbled upon these...WHAT THE FUCK WERE YOU SEARCHING FOR?!?!

The really scary thing is that the sweaters in the first picture are making a come back. I worked on a sweater almost exactly like the cable sweater last year and it was so popular we're going to carry it again for Winter 2006!! Also in winter 2006 you'll find lots of circular yokes like in the other featured sweater. HA!!!!!
